***SOLD*** 2005 Lupo GTI – low mileage – FSH


Recommended Posts

I’m selling my pride and joy. A genuine UK Lupo GTI, registered 5th May 2005, in excellent condition with only 55k miles on the clock. In Reflex Silver, 6-speed, with factory fitted upgrades of air conditioning, heated front seats, and electric sunroof.

The service book has 15 stamps – one for every year since new – either VW main dealer or VW specialist.

Service record:

  • -        2006 – 3,457 miles – VW

  • -        2007 – 7,253 miles – VW

  • -        2008 – 9,925 miles – VW

  • -        2009 – 11,789 miles – VW

  • -        2010 – 14,046 miles – VW

  • -        2011 – 16,183 miles – VW

  • -        2012 – 17,262 miles – VW

  • -        2013 – 23,347 miles – VW specialist

  • -        2014 – 26,884 miles – VW specialist

  • -        2015 – 32,067 miles – VW

  • -        2016 – 36,885 miles – VW

  • -        2017 – 41,437 miles – VW specialist

  • -        2018 – 43,931 miles** – VW specialist

  • -        2019 – 49,579 miles – VW specialist

  • -        2020 – 53,985 miles – VW specialist

**Cambelt, tensioners and water pump replaced in 2018 at 43,931 miles

MOT until July 2021

Engine and suspension as standard, unmodified. The following personal touches have been added during my ownership:

  • -        BBS RW001 alloys

  • -        20mm H&R spacers on rear wheels

  • -        Cambridge rear lights

  • -        Pressed metal number plates

  • -        Alpine double din head unit with Bluetooth

  • -        Brushed stainless Lupo GTI inner door sill strips

  • -        Rear window tints (professionally done)

  • -        Honda stubby aerial

  • -        Polo 9N rear wiper arm

I still have the following original parts: Bathurst alloys; rear lights; stereo. Plus, I also have brand new 5mm H&R spacers for the front wheels that were never fitted.

I have paperwork for all MOT’s and services carried out during my ownership, plus receipts for personal touches and any maintenance works carried out. 2 original keys.

I’ve really looked after this car, and I’ve loved owning it for the past 6 years. If my advert seems a bit wooden and matter of fact, it’s because I’m gutted to be selling it. The time has come for me to drive something I care a lot less about, something I can park anywhere without being anxious the entire time about what might happen to it whilst I’m gone, something a bit more spacious. The reason for sale is genuine, I’m expecting a baby. Thanks for looking, if you have any questions please message me. 

Location: Cornwall

Price: £5750

Hello, excellent advert. A couple of questions (in addition to that posted about the underneath) - do you have any service history papers from the two previous owners in addition to the service book with the stamps, a scan would obviously be very useful. Second question - is the car on 205/45 15 tyres - probably Toyo, or a different size.

I am not sure how to make contact as I am new to the Lupo website. Located in Sussex, so not close but that should not be insurmountable even in these current difficult times. Steve

Bargain. I've seen imports in much worse condition, no history and higher milage go for more.

Don't accept anything under full asking price. 

Are you selling the original wheels separately? (I'm interested...)

Being cornwall (no road salt), i suspect no rust.

Cornwall is close to the sea at all times so salt in the air can be an issue, you are right about road salt though, mild winters

Didn't think of the salt spray from above. True. But that said, Lupo bodyshells are pretty good when it comes to rust. It's the suspension parts exposed to road salt that have absolutely no rust protection.

Cheap enough to replace on the front but not so clever if its the rear
